Atlanta (WAOK/FOX5) — With the near $5 billion cut from the federal food stamp program, charities through out metro Atlanta are preparing themselves for an onslaught of people that may need more assistance than ever. Many donation demands for local charities are not being met, prompting these charities to form different sources for revenue in order to properly provide assistance for an increased number of people.
MUST ministries, a Cobb County charity organization, is preparing for its 10th annual fundraiser, the Gobble Job. In addition, it has began work on bringing a thrift store to life in order to operate it and use its funds to supply its aid.
